Hospital cuts ‘set to affect most of England’

21st February 2017

Cuts to hospital services could be set to affect the majority of locations in England, according to a new report.

The BBC has analysed local plans devised as part of a programme to transform the NHS and save money across 44 different areas, finding that one-third are seeking to reduce the number of hospitals providing emergency care, while a further third of areas are considering centralising non-emergency care in fewer sites.

In total, 28 proposals will involve the scaling-back or reduction of hospital care provision to some degree, although NHS England argues that patients will receive better care in the community to compensate for the hospital cuts.

This will be achieved through the creation of new "super" community hubs of GPs, care workers and district nurses, offering seven-day access to GPs and getting hospital specialists to run clinics in the community.

However, The King's Fund has questioned the feasibility of these plans, suggesting that community services in many areas are already under strain and may not be able to cope with the additional workload.
